Reviews

"Real Options is an exciting, accessible introduction to one of the most useful innovations of modern finance. Filled with lively examples from various industries, the book reveals the strategic power of real options in business planning."--David G. Luenberger, Professor of Engineering-Economic Systems and Operations Research, Stanford University, and author of Investment Science "This new book by Martha Amram and Nalin Kulatilaka provides a much-needed treatment of real options theory aimed at the practitioner. It is comprehensive, highly readable, and replete with useful examples. Every corporate finance practitioner should have a copy of Real Options on hand. --Robert S. Pindyck, Mitsubishi Bank, Professor of Applied Economics, MIT Sloan School of Management, and coauthor of Investment Under Uncertainty "Uncertainty is the greatest risk a manager faces--and provides the greatest opportunity for creating value. This book offers a way of thinking that helps managers balance the risks with potential payoffs when making decisions in an uncertain world. The real options approach is a simple yet potent method that great leaders--military, political, and economic--use implicitly. Real Options is an excellent introduction to these concepts and their applications."--James Wall, Treasurer and Controller, AirTouch Communications "Real Options is an exciting, accessible introduction to one of the most useful innovations of modern finance.
